The goal is to be able to dish out substantial meelee damage, while retaining the core
functions of a bfm and maintaining a solid defence.
The choice for going Radiance Genasi comes from the bonus metamagic feats and cha,con,int bonuses.
Hound archon would give 3 more AB but less pre epic feats, though still very viable, because you want to up the AB as much as possibly.
3 Paladin levels to get maximum BAB from Tensers transformation,
which this build really needs. (Thanks to Claus for this tip)
Heavy Flail because of high critting bludge damage, and also have an excellent Dispater weapon version.
To access empowered and maximized versions of Firebrand, locate them in the radial meny and assign the to quickslots as
soon as you get equipment that boost spell slots.
Base race is human
Subrace is Radiance Genasi
1 So/ 1 Pal/ 8 So/ 10 Rdd/ 1 So (Becomes BFM)/ 14 rdd/ 2 so/ 2 pal / 1 rdd
Pre epic feats (in correct sequence):
Extend spell OR Toughness (player choice, longer lasting tensers or 60 more HP)
Weapon Focus (Heavy flail)
Improved Critical (Heavy flail)
Resist energy fire
This one MUST be done in the correct order
Epic Toughness 1
Epic Toughness 2
Epic Toughness 3
Epic Toughness 4
Epic Toughness 5
Epic Toughness 6
Epic Toughness 7
Epic Toughness 8
Epic Toughness 9
Epic Toughness 10
Visit the RDD secret at rdd lvl 30,35,40,45 in order to maximize HP and skill points.
All stat points to strength
Overwhelming critical (Heavy flail)
Devastating critical (Heavy flail)
Epic weapon focus (Heavy flail)
Legendary weapon focus (Heavy flail)
Book: Spell penetration
Max craft armor, craft weapon, discipline, parry, tumble, listen, put the rest in concentration.
Level 60(+) data

(10 base, + 17 deflection, +17 natural, +14 rdd/tumble, +17 medium armor, +5 base armor, +17 shield (dire buckler), +8 dex, +20 dodge, +2 armor skin, +2 craft armor)
129 / 130 (song & craft armor) / 134 (girdling)
This gives 5% spell failure, going UR ward gives 3 less AC
Demi with Asmo shield (all effects) an 0% spell failure.
I used a STR artifact to push ab to 93, also stun immune and a death touch is nice to have.
HP: 1421/ 1481(Toughness)
Pretty straigthforward. Pick the BFM spells, the rest dont make much difference anyway because of low casterlvl. Though gust is still functional.
Fit in Tia belt + one/two other tia items for plenty of firebrands.
Nice build to put to use a dire buckler.
Tweak the rest to cover usual nessecities.
Very fun to play !
Good tank capabilties. 14-20/x4 crits of solid bludge damage.
Firebrands, normal, silent, empowered and maximized versions.
Lots of skills and partial crit immune through parry.
A bit low on AB.
Depends on tensers to meelee.
